Casino Gambara

In the Gambara casino the frescoes of the vaulted loggias exhibit a profusion of color that emphasizes the architectural detail, while in the Montalto casino the main reception area is decorated with a combination of frescoes and molded plaster, almost a trompe-l'oeil. In 1588 all the frescoes in the Palazzina Gambara were already completed. The loggia with The Labors of Hercules of the Zuccari school, in particular with the recognizable hand of Raffaellino da Reggio, also presents on the walls Landscapes and Views in the style of Paul Brill. Important for the history of the monument is the view of Villa Lante itself, in which the Fountain of the square shows a very original architectural definition, clearly inspired by the archaeological finds of the Vatican Gardens of Belvedere. And finally, the naturalistic decorations located in the rooms behind the loggia are spectacular, with Scenes of hunting and fishing by Antonio Tempesta.
